    CW's Best Crop

    Each season probably has plenty of players who have debuted and gone on to play an important part for CW, iirc season 8 had a lot of debuts.

    Season 7 probably provided the best crop of spinners in single year with Bennett, Collins and myself debuting, and it wasn't a bad year for bowling all round with Hoy also debuting.

    Which is the best year for batsmen or fast bowlers? Most recent years could probably make up a team from their rookies but i don't think 7 manages that, there was also the likes of Towns and Rai and of course the legend 'Don' Lezema, a couple of others but mainly defunct...the enigma Yasa Fayaz...

    Haha. It'll never stop being funny.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Did Rob Timewell debut in season 7 as well? Him and Hoy could probably take the fast bowlers crop by themselves tbh if that is the case. Also there was that guy who took 9 for bugger all against Green, Muhaffy maybe, can't remember. May have been season 8 though. Don't remember if he was any good other than that though, just remember that particular spell.

    Id almost say stats wise the best crop of batsman is the first CW players, included Cloete, Young, Twyman, Eclipse, Fitzsimmons version 1, Goff to name a few.

    A charity match at the end of the season with Seasons I-VII vs Seasons VIII-XIV might be an idea

    Season I-VII might look like

    FC

    Mork
    Young
    Cloete
    Butler
    Kearsley
    Chaulk+
    Camps
    Rose
    Wright
    Watt
    Pickup*

    not many options in the batting in general, bowling was a lot more competetive Bennett, Collins and Patrick all stiff

    OD

    Chaulk+
    Young
    Cloete
    Butler
    Camps*
    Towns
    Bennett
    Rose
    Kennett
    Watt
    Pickup

    Good side should beat VIII-XIV

    Good to see you make sure not to mention Camps,
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Arnold over Malone for mine. Averaged >50 in two full seasons of FC cricket, and was a handy FM as well.

    Also, didn't Borcich join in season 8, or was that seven? If so he slots in over Weber or Thomas.

    Didn't pick Arnold because I didn't think he was active anymore. Borcich would be available, but i though Thomas was just ahead of him and Weber is in for vareity, otherwise there's 6 seamers, he could replace Demeza though.

    Arnold may not be active, but Jaso's been banned....

    Fair enough though Borcich's recent record is much better than Geg's.

    Goff would have to be in an OD side ahead of Towns, surely?

    edit: oic, active posters only.
